Our friends at the Tyler Metro Chamber Of Commerce and The All New Kiss-FM are looking to highlight a few of the best businesses and people in East Texas with The Community Image Awards.

For over 30 years, the Tyler Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce (The Metro) has been
providing service to the East Texas community, it’s businesses and it’s families. It is long overdue for us to bring back the “Community Image Awards” where we allow the community to nominate businesses or individuals who they feel deserve to be recognized.
